Matcha Cupcakes with Matcha Cheese Frosting

"Got anything to eat?" I've 2 kiddos whom are like 'eating machine' constantly looking for food at home >.<" Think I've to feed them at least 6 meals per day (including snack time), tell me how not to be busy in kitchen churning out food for them......yah I told them I'm like their food vending machine! hahahah....Recently I like to bake cupcakes or muffins that is small in sizes which is easier for them to finish one at a go. Love this moist tender green tea cupcakes, with our without frosting is equally delicious :) But the kids of course adore creamy topping which they usually lick of them first :D

These look really moist - I have not tried cheese with matcha. Do the flavours blend well?
